Shoo fly, don't bother me

U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Joseph Luciani 354th Civil Engineer Squadron NCO in charge of pest management, installs a mosquito magnet at Heritage Park recently, Eielson Air Force Base, Alaska. The mosquito magnet is a device that burns propane, generating carbon dioxide, warmth and water vapor. Those three elements, often coupled with a chemical attractant heated in this process, draws the mosquitoes toward the propane flame, where they are then sucked into a net or holder where they are collected.
